Hadith No. 15 – Sahih al-Bukhari



Delight: a high degree of pleasure or enjoyment.

It’s not easy to achieve. It’s not impossible either.

Volume 1, Book 2, Number 15:

Narrated Anas:

The Prophet (SAW) said, “Whoever possesses the following three qualities will have the sweetness (delight) of faith:

1. The one to whom Allah and His Apostle becomes dearer than anything else.

2. Who loves a person and he loves him only for Allah’s sake.

3. Who hates to revert to Atheism (disbelief) as he hates to be thrown into the fire.”

Loving people for Allah’s sake. A lot comes under this topic, but this is the crux of the matter: this kind of love increases your love for Allah.

I only want to quote Zain Bhikha at this point..

This life is a trial, can never the let the test effect your smile

Reach for your brother, go the extra mile

Kiss for ya mother, hug your sister, let your wife know that you miss her

Know that you can never give up

When you fall to the floor, I’m the reason you must get up


I’m a blessing from God, so why you don’t use me more is so odd

You need love! We need love!

Listen here.



Hadith No. 14 – Sahih al-Bukhari



I skipped a day. I know. My excuse is not genuine at all. So, I won’t tell you. But I’ve said sorry to Allah, and in order to make up for my mistake, I’ll be doing two Ahadith today, inshaAllah. =)

And I have a small request. I’m a human, very prone to mistakes and blunders. When I go wrong somewhere (like I did yesterday), I want you guys, the readers, to remind/correct me. Actually some of my friends did ask me why I didn’t write any Hadith yesterday. And I love them for it. <3

Volume 1, Book 2, Number 13:

Narrated Anas:

The Prophet said “None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children and all mankind.”


There’s a slight difference between this and yesterday’s Hadith. It talks about loving the Prophet (SAW) more than our parents, children and ALL MANKIND. That includes ourselves.

Me, myself and I.

What stops us from following the Prophet (SAW)? Our ‘selves’. Let’s take the example of eating while sitting – that’s a Sunnah. Say I’m in the kitchen, making myself a sandwich. Since it’s a ‘snack’, I eat it standing/walking about in the kitchen. What’s stopping me from sitting down? ‘Oh it’s just a couple of bites. I should make the effort to sit down for that?’ Yes, I should! Because it’s a Sunnah.

There are small matters in which we need to check ourselves. Never give yourself excuses that contain these words: Me, myself and I.

And that’s the lesson for today: GET OVER YOURSELF.
